April 12 (Reuters) - Lithium producer Talison Lithium's third-quarter sales rose 15 percent, helped by higher output.
The Perth, Australia-based company reported quarterly sales of 111,896 tonnes of lithium concentrate, up from 97,001 tonnes of lithium concentrate in the year-ago period.
Talison sold lithium for an average price of $340 per tonne, 12 percent above last year.
Production rose 6 percent to 93,563 tonnes of lithium concentrate.
Talison said production at its flagship Greenbushes in Western Australia will be shut down for about two weeks during May for expansion work.
